Metatron - Too Big To Fail (Georgia Faust)
Regular price $15.00
everything would already be born
Capitalism’s absurd logic and inevitable deadly conclusions dictate the tone and voice of Georgia Faust’s ambitious, cerebral, and eerie debut. Tracing economic, architectural, and ecological disasters through the streets of New York City, language itself requires new forms and formulations as it attempts to relay the damage. Teeming with urban imagery and uncanny leaps of thought, this poetry collection is a one-of-a-kind exploration of how it feels to be alive in America in the 21st century. Personal experience is subject to market and atmospheric fluctuations.
Georgia Luna Smith Faust was born, raised, and currently lives in lower Manhattan where she presides over poetry and corporate bankruptcy administration. She is the author of the chapbook Too Faust Too Furious (Resolving Host, 2016) and the collaborative artist book, Pests of Public Importance (Purgatory Pie Press, 2016). She holds a BA in Literature and American Studies from Macalester College and an MFA in poetry from Brooklyn College.

“If Frank O’Hara were eating lunch in the 21st century, he’d be Georgia Faust. Too Big to Fail is a meditation on our emergency 60 years later, the self tripped up by junk bonds or rapid G**gle ads that cling to browsing history even when it’s cleared. A book so disjunct it’s melodious, and here, as in O’Hara, disjuncts act as semantic keys. A reverie for the out of pocket, but Faust takes a pass on melancholy; her careening cement truck of poetry is putting up no wall.”
